Hot Routes 5.5.11: Players not huge Goodell fans



Posted by Josh Katzowitz

  • Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton is pretty adamant about getting a bill done that would fund a new stadium for the Vikings. Even if the state’s budget is going to be short about $5 billion the next two years, Dayton wants this thing done ASAP.
  • The Dolphins will induct former broadcaster Jim Mandich – who also was a starter on the undefeated 1972 Miami team – into the organization’s honor roll. Mandich died last week from cancer at the age of 62. He will be the 22nd member of the honor roll.
  • Another interesting story from Yahoo! Sports’ Mike Silver on the dislike many NFL players have for commissioner Roger Goodell.
  • A Cowboys spokeswoman who says she was hurt when the team’s practice facility collapsed in 2009 has filed a lawsuit. Jancy Briles is suing the companies responsible for building the structure, and she’s looking for compensation for "serious, disabling and permanent injuries."
  • Former Patriots LB Tedy Bruschi, along with former Titans coach Jeff Fisher, will attempt to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro next week as they try to drum up support for the Wounded Warrior Project. Sounds like a lot of climbing to me.

Dolphins radio announcer hospitalized again

Posted by Andy Benoit

Some unfortunate news out of Miami: Dolphins broadcaster Jim Mandich returned to the hospital over the weekend. Mandich, 62, is fighting bile-duct cancer.

The Sun Sentinel says friends and family are extremely concerned, as Mandich’s condition sounds serious. Mandich was a tight end on the undefeated ’72 Dolphins squad.

Mandich's cancer was diagnosed in February 2010. He quit his popular call-in show but continued to call Dolphins games with play-by-play man Jimmy Cefalo and analyst Joe Rose.
